In the summer of 2020, Rebecca Borg was finishing up graduate school at Emporia State University by completing her final practicum for children birth to 3-years-old through Rainbows United. “Mindy Brockmeyer, Early Childhood Special Education Teacher, was a wonderful mentor,” said Rebecca. “Her dedication inspired me.”
Once she graduated, she took a full-time position with Rainbows serving children and families in Sumner County. “I am thankful that I was given a chance right out of school,” said Rebecca. As an Early Childhood Special Education Teacher, she provides early intervention services to help children meet developmental milestones. She enjoys meeting new families, being able to travel from home to home and not being tied to a desk for the day.
She works with children birth to 3-years-old. “I don’t sit much on a visit,” said Rebecca. “The kids are usually very mobile or working on becoming mobile. It’s amazing to watch them learn and grow. The job has brought me out of my comfort zone and helped me overcome social anxiety in talking to strangers.”
Katie Bally, Sumner County Infant/Toddler Services Coordinator says, “Rebecca builds strong relationships with the families she serves. Her strong work ethic and her passion to serve is shown every day with the families she works with. I am thankful to have her on our team in Sumner County.”
